Overlooking the 2,775-acre Lake Burton, Waterfall Club is a gated golf community offering luxury homes in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Club membership at this North Georgia retreat provides access to championship golf, the Mountain Lodge clubhouse, Athletic Center and outdoor recreation in the nearby Chattahoochee National Forest. Named as one of the five "Best of the Best" private golf courses in Georgia by Georgia Golf News, Waterfall Club's mountain golf course features 18 holes designed by Scott Pool. On the signature second hole, golfers tee off at the top of a 215-foot cascading waterfall. The 52,000-square-foot Athletic Center includes a fitness center, heated Jr Olympic swimming pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool and indoor sports courts for tennis, pickle ball, and basketball. Outdoor tennis court slated for completion spring 2016.
An on-site concierge organizes activities and a full social calendar of events. The community also has a dock on the lake where fishing, swimming, kayaking and picnicking are encouraged and boats are available for half or full day rental.
Because Waterfall is centrally located in the northeast Georgia mountain-lakes region, Atlanta, Asheville or Greenville can be reached by car in less than an hour and 50 minutes. Franklin, NC with its Smoky Mountain Music Hall is only a 45 minute drive and Athens, Ga with the Classic Center is only a 90 minute drive. Both venues offer consistently outstanding programs of concerts, entertainers and Broadway shows.
A recent comment from a resident: "Originally from Texas, my wife and I were looking for the ideal location to retire. This is never an easy choice for most retires as there are so many issues to consider. As the parents of five children and four grandchildren, we knew we could not live close to all of them, so we needed a place they would want to visit. To state it simply, our children and grandchildren love to visit Waterfall. Our view of Lake Burton, Waterfall golf course and the Blue Ridge Mountains are just stunning. A full four seasons is a new experience for us to enjoy. Summers with moderate temperatures find us outdoors exploring the many beauties that are accessible here and around Lake Burton. If you like to play golf, fish, drive beautiful roads, visit quaint towns and hillside vineyards or just throw yourself in the lake, Waterfall might just be for you."
